Trying to figure out if I need endorsements for the knowledge areas I missed on FOI, AGI and FIA.
Part 61 has me confused here -
(6) Have an endorsement, if required by this part, in the applicant's logbook or training record that has been signed by an authorized instructor who certifies that the applicant—
(iii) Has demonstrated satisfactory knowledge of the subject areas in which the applicant was deficient on the airman knowledge test;
Emphasis mine. Under 61.183 there is no mention of needing an endorsement for this. So I thought I must not need one. But to confirm I looked to see if it was required under the section that talks about private pilot, and I didn't see the requirement there either. Is there something else I'm missing? As far as I can see only 3 endorsements are needed for the CFI practical test:
(d) Receive a logbook endorsement from an authorized instructor on the fundamentals of instructing listed in §61.185 of this part appropriate to the required knowledge test;
(g) Receive a logbook endorsement from an authorized instructor on the areas of operation listed in §61.187(b) of this part, appropriate to the flight instructor rating sought
(i)(1) Receive a logbook endorsement from an authorized instructor indicating that the applicant is competent and possesses instructional proficiency in stall awareness, spin entry, spins, and spin recovery procedures after providing the applicant with flight training in those training areas in an airplane or glider, as appropriate, that is certificated for spins;
Interestingly enough, the proctor's test-giving handbook says that no endorsement is needed to take any of the CFI tests, which seems to conflict with (d) above, but that is a second question.
I'm sure the FAA examiner will be thorough so I want to have all of these things in order and crystal clear. Thanks
